        Comments about Sideswipe Herbicide Applicator:

        We use the Side Swipe applicator around the house, farm buildings and garden. The only thing we had a problem with was the 45⁰ plastic shutoff elbow that came with the unit. It broke after 6 months of use. Replaced it with brass. Hasn't had a problem since.

        Comments about Sideswipe Herbicide Applicator:

        Great idea, but parts are flimsy and break easily. Knap on roller is too long. Needs to be no longer than 3/16". Needs easier way to fill. Possibly from opposite end from roller.

            Have used this product before and loaned it to someone and never got it back. Great produce, as with the cover one can swipe under plants and not hurt them. WE had been looking for one to buy for some 10 years and all the others didn't work as well

              Comments about Sideswipe Herbicide Applicator:

              We bought this to carefully treat invasive grass around endangered plants in windy conditions, but couldn't use it. It takes a long time to saturate the knap of the paint roller, but once saturated, it just continues to pour out! The knap is not dense enough to keep fluid from dripping--constantly, and with volume. Tipping it back to upright doesn't stop the drips--there will be a large volume of herbicide in roller, so it continues to run down the long handle for a good while. This might be useful on a flat lawn where you intend full coverage more or less, maybe using a selective herbicide to kill your broadleaf weeds. No good for precision work.

                  Comments about Sideswipe Herbicide Applicator:

                  very difficult to use. disappointing product and very sorry I spent money on it. When full, pad gets wet, but doesn't easily apply to plants - had to press them down on the ground firmly to get any herbacide on them. Very messy to clean up and put away after use. Much, much easier to use a gallon sprayer with nozzel on stream instead of spray.
